I am so sorry for your loss. My husband and I were classmates of Greg. I will always remember his kindness and his sense of humor. May his memory be a blessing.

To the Epperson family. I was very saddened to hear about Dr. Epperson. I met him while he worked in the ER at St Francis in Topeka. He had a smile that would light up the entire department. Although I worked in registration, he always made me feel valuable and many times thanked me for my hard work because third shift registration worked alone with no help, so I valued his recognition. My sympathy to you all.

My deepest sympathy to family and friends for the loss of Dr. Epperson. I had the great privilege of working with him at St. Francis in Topeka. Excellent physician! When he first started in the ER I was chatting with him and asked where he was from. He said I wouldn’t know because such a small town in western KS. I said I’m from a small town out there, Kinsley. From there I learned he went to Larned HS and played basketball and I remember watching him play against us in tournament. Such a small world and would’ve never thought our paths would cross again. I knew him as a great Dr. to work with and also as a patient of his and he saved my life when I needed it. God rest his soul that he will be fondly remembered and greatly missed. Prayers and love to his family and friends. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Greg drew people in with his magnetic personality and that laugh of his. When you were with him, it felt you were at the place to be with Greg always reminding you "Isn't this great?!" He loved his life so much to the point of thinking that everybody should be living how he does...marrying an incredible wife and having such a great son and extended family. He always showed me a zest for living the way you want to live and was an incredible friend to have. Love you always, G-Money and love and prayers to all of my extended family and friends of Greg's during this difficult time.

Greg was one of my best friends growing up. Starting in Pawnee Rock all the way through high school. Every memory of you is precious but I will never forget walking with you for our High School graduation. We joked that two Pawnee Rockers were going to be the first to get our diplomas. It was a great day. I always knew you were going to do great things. You will be missed my friend. Prayers to your family and friends. Until we see you again.

I went to elementary and middle school with Greg. He was a kind, athletic, funny kid who always had a smile on his face. Greg was destined to do great things. It seemed that there wasn’t anything he couldn’t achieve. He was so talented and intelligent. I was not surprised when I heard he had become a doctor.
One memory I have of Greg, is when he and Kent Welch shot a bow and arrow during PE class in junior high. It may or may not have hit someone else. I just remember Mr. Rausch not being happy. These boys always kept class interesting. :)
My heart goes out to the entire Epperson family. RIP Greg.

Greg I am still in shock you are gone. As part of the family I like to call my “Pawnee Rock family” you and your brother were at my house all the time as young teenagers and we wouldn’t have it any other way. You were always so sweet and the smartest kid I knew and will always cherish all our Pawnee Rock memories. Prayers for your family and friends in the coming days as we all say goodbye and we will see you again one day.
I wasn’t in the picture but I was probably taking the picture.

Greg played basketball and football for me back in Pawnee Rock. I was his Science and Math teacher. The kids loved when I would predict what they would do as their life's work. For Greg, I told him he would one day be a doctor. He told me I was really off and he was going to be a lawyer and make big bucks! (L. A. Law was big at the time). Later he sent me a message saying he had been accepted into medical school. I was so proud of him and I know he was a loving and caring doctor! My heart hurts deeply right now. He was a light in my life and a delight to teach and coach! You will always be in my memories and my prayers! Rest in peace, young man. Coach Rausch
